Daryl Murphy: Extends stay at Ipswich

The Republic of Ireland international finished last season as the second top scorer for Mick McCarthy's side, which led to him getting a recall for his national side after a six-year absence.

After scoring 13 goals for Town last season, Murphy has revealed that he finally feels settled.

He told the club's official website: "I'm really enjoying my football here so I'm obviously delighted to have signed a new contract.

"I've said before, Ipswich Town feels like home for me - both on and off the pitch. My family love the area and that's very important to me.

"We are making progress as a football club and the challenge now is to continue that next season and hopefully get into that top six. That's the target."

Murphy's signature caps a busy few days for the club, who completed the signing of Cameron Stewart after McCarthy and Stephen Hunt also committed their futures to the club.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
